Trump: 'Policy didn't work' on North Korea for 25 years

  Trump: 'Policy didn't work' on North Korea for 25 years President Trump on Monday said the U.S. hasn't been successful in its handling of the North Korean threat for the past 25 years. "Our country has been unsuccessfully dealing with North Korea for 25 years, giving billions of dollars & getting nothing," Trump tweeted."Policy didn't work!"Our country has been unsuccessfully dealing with North Korea for 25 years, giving billions of dollars & getting nothing. Policy didn't work!- Donald J.

WaPo: North Korea Secretly Asking Republicans For Help ‘Figuring Out’ Unhinged Trump. To answer your question, no one wants to go to war with NK, but trying to solve the problem with ineffective measures has got us to where we are today.

In fact, even as Trump was saying that he was considering “pretty severe things” in response to North Korea ’s first test of an intercontinental ballistic missile on There is also no indication that the US has started taking the kinds of massive logistical preparations needed to launch a war against North Korea .

An increasingly hostile relationship between the U.S. and North Korea has Americans considering a preemptive strike on the country—and many Republicans are all for it. About 46 percent of Republicans support a preemptive strike on North Korea today—compare that with just 42 percent of Republicans who say they don't support it, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.

When members of both major parties are surveyed, that question changes a lot. Only 16 percent of Democrats favor the idea of the U.S. making a preemptive strike on North Korea, while a whopping 77 percent of Democrats oppose it.

Trump may visit demilitarized zone in South Korea to send a 'significant message'

  Trump may visit demilitarized zone in South Korea to send a 'significant message' President Donald Trump may visit the demilitarized zone separating the South and North Koreas during his first visit to the Korean Peninsula next month in a bid to send a “significant message” to Kim Jong-un.Speculation that Trump could travel to the contentious area was first raised by Yonhap, a South Korean news agency that spoke with an unnamed military official.

Part of that could be the complete lack of confidence the U.S. has in President Donald Trump’s ability to negotiate with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. A majority of American voters -- by almost 20 percent -- say they don’t have any confidence in Trump to handle the current situation.

Voters have way more confidence, however, in the rest of the government in dealing with North Korea. Over 60 percent said they do have confidence in "top national security and diplomatic officials" to handle the situation, the poll found.

Even though Republicans favor acting now with a preemptive strike against North Korea, a small plurality want the U.S. to at least attempt to negotiate -- about 50 percent compared with 46 percent against. Among both parties, that’s pretty consistent. Of all voters, 65 percent say the U.S. should negotiate with North Korea diplomatically, while 29 percent say it’s a waste of time.
